Swami Ramswarup: SA beti, Bharteeya Vedic sanskriti mein updesh hai ki manushya ka shareer paakar nar athwa nari “Mrityum ati taranni” arthat mrityu ko jeete, ved marg par chalkar moksh prapt kare, Ishwar ko prapt kare, akaarann mrityu ke baare mein to soche bhi na aur aap mrityu prapt karna chahti hain, yeh to paap hai. Aap is Jeevan mein dukh mehsoos kar rahee ho beti, maut kee kamna karne se to dukh aur bhi bahut zyada badh jayega. Log jise Maha mrityunjaya jaap kehte hain weh Yajurved ka 3/60 mantra hai. Usmein bhi Ishwar se yahi prarthna kee hai ki Hey Parmeshwar! Hum moksh ko prat karein. Mrityu se chhoot jayein. Isliye beti, mrityu ke baare mein sochkar aur adhik paapi mat bano. Main to bahut door hoon isliye aapko Vedic shiksha nahi de paunga. Atah aap local nazdeek ke Arya Samaj Mandir mein jaakar hawan karna seekho, Vedic pravachan suno aur koi shanka ho to mujhe prashan bhej do. Aapka Jeevan safal ho jayega. I also pate my article in this regard:-

SUICIDE
Yajurved mantra 7/48 ke anusaar hum jeevatmayein manushya kee yoni mein aakar paap athwa punya karma karne ke liye poornataha azad hain parantu hamare kiye hue karmon ka phal kramshaha dukh evam sukh ke roop mein Parmeshwar deta hai. Artaht karmaphal hamare haath mein nahin hai. Doosra Rigved mantra 10/135/1,2,3 ka bhaav hai ki Parmeshwar nein hamein manushya ka shareer pichhley janamon mein kiye hue paap aur punnya karma ka phal dukh aur sukh ke roop mein bhogne ke liye diya hai aur ab jo paap aur punnya karma kareingey uska phal agley janamon mein bhogeingey. Bhaav yeh hai ki atmahatya ek mahapaap hai isliye jo atmahatya roop paap karta hai, weh bhi janam lekar avashya is paap ko mahadukh ke roop mein bhogega hee kyunki yeh Ishwar ka banaya hua srishtee ka niyam hai. Aur woh janam Rigved mantra 10/51/3 ke anusaar manushya ke shareer ka nahin hoga apitu kutta, billi, gadha, ghoda, saanp, bichchhu athwa keet patang ka shareer wala hoga.

Asal mein to Ishwar nein hamein manushya janam vedic sadhna karke Moksha prapti ke liye diya hai yadi hum vishya-vikaron mein padkar shareerik aur mansik pareshaniyon ka khud shikaar ho jaatey hain aur yeh Ishwar kee dein, jo manav shareer hai, uska dharamyukta istemaal na karke atmahatya jaisa paap karma karte hain to iska matlab yeh hua ki hamne Ishwar kee yeh sundar den thukra dee aur Ishwar ko naraaz kiya. Issey to, karza aur pareshaniyon mein bhi zinda rehney wala Mirza Galib hee achchha tha, jo keh gaya:-
‘Mujhe kya bura tha marna,
Gar ek baar hota.”

Yahaan Galib keh raha hain ki Pareshaniyon se ghabra kar koi marega to iska matlab yeh thodi hai ki weh pareshaniyon se azad ho gaya. Weh aur paapon ke saath is mahapaap ko bhi bhogega. Satya yeh hai ki hum sansari vastuyon aur maya mein phans jaatey hain, jo ki Raj, tam aur satva gunn se banee hotee hain aur sadaa vishaye vikari aur dukh dene walee hain. Inka istemaal to vedic bhakti karne ke sath-sath tyagpoorvak kiya jaata hai tab yeh vastu sukh detee hain anyatha nahin detee hain, is vishya mein main apna ek article paste kar raha hoon.

Rigved mantra 1/164/20 states (SUPARNNA) having brilliant, shinning wings (SAYUJA) having related with each-other (SAKHAYA) like friends (DWA) two birds (SAMAANAM VRIKSHAM) at the same tree (PARISHASVAJATE) live i.e., there are two birds who live on a tree. Here two birds mean one soul and other is Almighty God. (TYOHO) between them (ANYAHA) one (PIPALAM) ripened fruit of the tree (ATTI) eats (SWADU) with taste and (ANYAHA) another bird (ANSHNAT) not eating the fruit (ABHI, CHAKSHEETI) is drishta i.e., who looks only.

Meaning: Here the tree is human body, who like a tree gets destroyed one day. In the human body, Almighty God as well as soul reside. Soul faces the result of his good and bad deeds through human-body whereas Almighty God only witnesses all the deeds of human-beings. So Almighty God is only Drishta i.e., one who sees. Therefore, there are three eternal matters- Almighty God, Soul and prakriti. Almighty God and soul are alive matters and prakriti is non-alive. All non-alive matters of universe like sun, moon, air, water etc., are made by God from prakriti. God is eternal truth so neither God is made from any matter nor any matter is made from God.

Rebirth of choice after suicide

According to the religious path, even to think about suicide, is a sin. Human body is blessed by God to face the sorrows etc., according the deeds done in previous lives. Suppose a person commits suicide, it means he has not faced his deeds of remaining life. It means the deeds which he did not face, will be counted to be faced in the following life, after taking rebirth. Moreover, rebirth is also awarded by God according to the past and present lives’ deeds. When a person has committed the sins in the present life, how can he say that he will take rebirth of human life? He may be a snake, rat, lizard, animal etc., etc., and has to face more sorrows than those faced in human life. So one should never be nervous but must do hard deeds to get progress. You are advised to listen Vedas and learn how to perform yajyen, name jaap of God, asan, prannayam, meditation etc. You may come here also for a week or so to get spiritual advices otherwise you may seek an acharya locally. I have written some spiritual books according to Vedas, study of which will give you peace. The books can be sent on demand on receipt of your postal address. Please, do not be nervous. Be brave and go ahead for hard working and pious deeds i.e., worship etc.

Is beech, Ishwar ka ashirwad parpt karne ke liye aap nimanlikhit karein :-

Shubh Karma

Hard working, devotion, dedication, honesty, services to the parents and elders to follow eternal religion mentioned in Vedas, practice of Ashtang Yog, discharging moral duties to get progress in education, science simultaneously with spiritualism like, daily havan, to be in contact with the learned Acharya, to get his advice, are some of the pious deeds which make the future bright and obliterate the sorrows, problems, diseases, etc.

One must wake up early in the morning for early morning walk and exercises, must sit on meditation and chant holy name of God, must be away from any addiction and non-vegetarian. Such pious actions lead to long, happy life and bright future.

GAYATRI MANTRA

The Gayatri mantra is as follows ---

OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA
DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT

Meaning of Gayatri mantra stating each word is as follows. Its meaning is based on Vedas and Sanskrit grammar. Grammatical hints are in short please.

Om has three Hindi words. Aa, Uu AND Ma. Aa is meant for Aakaar from which three names of God are built, Viraat, Agni, and Vishwadi. From Uu = uukar from which Hirannyagarbha, Vayu and Tejas names occur and Ma = makaar from which Ishwar, Aditya and Praajyan aadi, holy names of God occur. Rigved mantra 1/164/46 says God is one but His names are several. But here OM the holy name of God is only being explained. VIRAAT = Viraat word is made from dhatu 'Rajrideeptau' i.e., manifest. Therefore Viraat means He who manifests the universe. As God manifests the universe, thus Viraat is the name of God. Rigved mandal 10, sukta 129 states that like potter makes pot from clay, similarly God creates universe from non-alive matter prakriti. Prakriti is unseen matter. From unseen matter, the whole universe is created in the visible form. Science also says that matter is never destroyed but changes its form.

Suppose a paper is burnt, paper changes its form into ashes. Then ashes are crushed and thrown in air. At this moment, the paper changed into ashes becomes invisible but was never destroyed. Similarly the whole universe at the time of final destruction is turned into prakriti i.e., into unseen form.

AGNI = From dhatu, "ANCHU GATI POOJANAYOHO" the word "AGNI is made. Its meaning is: He who is a form of wisdom. "SARVAJAYEN" i.e., Omniscient. That is, knows each and every atom of universe and even beyond universe. He who is to be known, to be gained and is worshipful. So Agni is the name of God.

VISHWA = Vishwa word is made from dhatu, "VISHPRAVESHANE". Its meaning is He in whom the universe is entering or He who is entering the universe. So being omnipresent, Vishwa is the name of God.

HIRANNYAGARBHA = i.e., " JYOTIRVAYIHIRANYAM". Its meaning is, who is the base of all sun, etc., luminous lokas or He who is the living place of all luminous lokas. VAYU = from dhatu, "VA GATIGANDHANYOHO", vayu word is made. Its meaning is He who holds, gives life and destroys and is the mightiest amongst all. So the name of God is Vayu.

TEJ = from dhatu, "TIJA NISHANE", the word Tej is made meaning He who is self made and self-enlightened and gives light to sun, moon, stars etc. God does not take light from anywhere but gives light to sun, moon, stars, etc. so the unbroken, unobstructed/unproduced and eternal form of light is Almighty God and not sun, moon etc. So the name of God is Tej.

ISHWAR = from dhatu, "ISH ASHWERIYE", the word Ishwar is made. Its meaning is whose knowledge is thoughtful and true and He who has unlimited wealth, fortune and glory etc. Therefore the name of God is Ishwar. Here it is not out of place to mention that soul (man/woman) has limited qualities and are dependent whereas God is independent and has unlimited qualities that is why He is God.

ADITYA = from dhatu, "DO AVAKHANDANE", Aditya word is made. Its meaning is the one who cannot be broken into pieces and thus cannot be destroyed. So God's name is Aditya.

PRAJAYEN (PRAGYA) = from dhatu, "JYEN AVABODHANE", Prajayen word is made meaning whose wisdom is totally without any misunderstanding and thus he who knows every matter and behavior of whole universe without misunderstanding. So God's name is Prajayen. So here also it is not out of place to mention that illusion can never attack on God and God is totally free from illusion.

BHUHU = "BHUHU ITI VAYEE PRANAHA" i.e., He who is the base of lives of universe, is most beloved, even more than Prann i.e., breath. So Bhuhu is the name of God.

BHUVAHA= "BHUVAHA ITI APANAHA" i.e., He who is totally free from any sorrow, and the soul removes his own all sorrows after coming in contact with Him. So the name of God is Bhuvaha.

SWAHA = i.e., "SWAHA ITI VYANAHE" who is omnipresent in the universe and is holding the same. So the name of God is Swaha.

SAVITUHU = He who creates the universe. So the name of God is Savituhu.

DEVSYA= who gives all pleasure/merriment, so the name of God is Dev.

VARENNYAM = He who is the most supreme and acceptable. God is most supreme and acceptable for worship.

BHARGAHA = the purest entity (though God is formless, but finding no suitable English word of Sanskrit word, "SHUDH SWARUPAM" the word entity has been used.)

TAT = i.e., the God i.e., of the purest entity.

DHIMAHI = i.e., we must hold (sort of meditation) because

YAHA = the God

NAHA = our,

DHIYAHA = mind(i.e., in our minds)

PRACHODYAT = by inspiration (fulfil the mind with wisdom)

MEANING

"We meditate the God who is the base of lives' of universe, totally free from any sorrow, omnipresent, creates the universe, gives all pleasure/merriment, most supreme and acceptable, purest entity; May the God enlighten our minds with wisdom by His inspiration".

Here it is not out of place to mention that idea of a (one) Ved mantra is based on ideas of several Ved mantras. So in the above Gayatri mantra, there are three things ----

Bhuhu, Bhuvaha, Swaha, Savituhu, Bhargaha, Devsya are some qualities amongst unlimited qualities of God. These are called Stuti i.e., to say about God with His real qualities and not self made etc.

Secondly Dhimahi means meditation i.e., one should always sit in meditation and do hard and pious deeds for which he will have to study Vedas in full, while discharging moral duties towards family and nation.

Third and last is DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODYAT. It is a prayer to God explanation of which is cited above.

HOW TO DO HAVAN

Please sit in the morning to perform havan. Havan must be in sunlight then it is more beneficial. Then half a bowl of fresh water with a tablespoon must be with you with small twigs especially of mango tree if possible, havan samagri, ghee, camphor and match box must be there with you. Please sit on sukh asan on four times folded blanket and blanket must be on mat.

Sukh asan i.e., sit on duly folded feet in comfortable position. Then first close your eyes and concentrate between two eyebrows and chant Gayatri mantra three times within heart and not by mouth. Then open your eyes.

Take one spoon of water in right palm. Chant this mantra, OM AMRITO UPASTRANMASI SWAHA and drink the water which you have put in your palm. Then again take the spoon of water in right palm then chant the next mantra, OM AMRITA APIDHANMASI SWAHA, and drink the water. Then again take the water in right palm and chant the mantra, OM SATYAM YASHAH SHRI MAYI SHRI SHRAYTAAM SWAHA, and drink the water. Then wash the right palm while sitting, with the same water kept in bowl.

Then put the twigs into havan kund with one piece of camphor and burn it. During this process chant the Gayatri mantra again and again till such time the fire is lighted sufficiently. Then chant the Gayatri mantra and at the last add the word Swaha and offer ghee with tablespoon, quantity equivalent to 4 to 5 drops. And if you are alone then also offer in fire pinch of havan samagri from your right hand's finger and thumb avoiding forefinger. So this offering may be of 11 times, 21 times or 51 times as the time suits. It is the simplest way and I have not quoted the complete method of Yajna. The havan with Ved mantras are always offered as the best worship of God only please. Do havan daily and both times.

In the end of hawan, please pray to God to fulfill your desires. I hope God will sure listen to you.

PROCEDURE OF CHANTING

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.

After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

Anupam: Swamiji pranam. Arya Samaj me marne vale ke liye uskemarne ke 1 sal bad se her sal usi din havan karne ka vidhan kyu hai jabki apne bataya ki janam to marne ke tereh din bad janam ho jata hai.
Terah din tak atma ke jaha jaha jane ka ullekh vedo me hai vaha atma ke jane ka kya prayogan ho sakta hai.tereh din ka samay hi kyo nischit hai.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you, my daughter. Beti, jeevatma 13 din baad avashya doosra shareer karmanusaar dharann kar leti hai. Isee ko doosra janam kehte hain, parantu jeevatma poornna ved-vidya ke abhaav mein aur Vedic sadhna ke abhava mein Ishwar ko prapt nahi kar paatee. Weh janam-mrityu ke chakkar mein phansee rehtee hai aur dukhi rehtee hai. Is Vishay mein Atharvaved mantra mein kaha hai ki yadi parivaar wale us bichhadee hue jeevatma ke liye Yajyen karte hain, to ek to uskee yaad banee rehtee hai, uske achchhe karmon kee yaad banee rehtee hai. Doosra, Yajyen karne se 7 pichhlee, 7 aane walee aur 15th peedee, jo Yajyen kartee hai, jeevit hai yeh 15 peediyan bhavsagar se tar jaatee hain. Isliye har paristhiti mein ved mantron se Yajyen karna uttam hai kyunki yeh Yajyen anant sukh deta hai aur Yajyen karne kee aagya swayam Ishwar ne vedon mein dee hai. Atma ke 13 din akash mein vichrann karne ka prayojan Yajurved chapter 39 ke anusaar divya gunn prapt karna hee hai. Aur 13 din ka samay jo hai, weh anaadi kaal se aur swabhawik taur se chalaa aa raha hai. Na to yeh badal sakta aur na hee ismein koi addition- alteration kee ja saktee hai. Yeh srishtee kram mein aata hai aur srishti kram anadi –avinashi aur swabhavik hai.
